Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 'Tummy' - A Lemming Rock Opera

A rock opera is a work of rock music that presents a storyline told over multiple parts, songs or sections in the manner of opera. A rock opera differs from a conventional rock album, which usually includes songs that are not unified by a common theme or narrative. Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the ten greatest rock operas. In Russia, the performance of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Philharmonic in Rostov-on-Don has been halted while prosecutors determine whether or not there is any validity to the complaint launched by 18 locals alleging that the musical is a profanation. The Russian Orthodox Church denies any involvement in the complaints.
